SIIG JK-WR0312-S1 Black Wireless Multi-Touchpad Mini Keyboard

5 out of 5 eggs Works with KVM 04/16/2011

This review is from: SIIG JK-WR0312-S1 Black Wireless Multi-Touchpad Mini Keyboard

Pros: I use this with a cheap 16-port KVM to control 16 computers wirelessly from my desk (imaging station). Having the keyboard and touchpad in one unit makes it much easier to walk around or lean back in my chair while working on a computer. I have not had to click the "connect" buttons on the receiver and keyboard as is so common with most other wireless keyboards/mice. It connects immediately and can be used to enter a computer's BIOS.

The touchpad is perfect, just like a good quality laptop touchpad. The buttons aren't exceptionally tactile (clicky) but is fine for fast touch typists.

The keyboard overall is very sturdy with no flex. It's perfectly flat and only about 1/2" thick. Feels like a laptop for throw-your-feet-up-on-the-desk typing.

Cons: I wish there were no Numlock/10-key overlay. Yes, I know this can be disabled in the BIOS but I don't want to do this for each of 16 computers, especially since the 16 computers are replaced frequently. If there were a switch to force numlock off (override computer setting) I would be happy. I don't know anyone who actually uses the 10-key overlay pad on a laptop.

The fact that the keyboard has a slot on the bottom to stow the receiver when not in use is a bonus, so I am not removing any eggs for the fact that it doesn't hold the receiver as well as it should. It is fairly easy for the receiver to fall out of the keyboard, but that is only a concern if the keyboard travels between computers.

Other Thoughts: This is the BEST wireless keyboard I have found at any price. I now have 3, one for HTPC use, one for a 16 port KVM switch, and one for a DVD duplicating system that is on a rolling cart and didn't have space for a standard keyboard and mouse.

5 out of 5 eggs Great for KVM switch! 02/15/2011

This review is from: SIIG JK-WR0312-S1 Black Wireless Multi-Touchpad Mini Keyboard

Pros: Works great with USB KVM switch, feels more solid than I expected, mouse tracks great. I am tempted to get one of these for my HTPC - it is a full size keyboard that feels very much like a laptop keyboard/touchpad.

Cons: None, especially at this price point.

Other Thoughts: I did not want another wired keyboard and mouse on my desk for the 16-port KVM switch I have, and this fits the bill perfectly. The KVM hotkeys (scroll lock) works fine wirelessly, so I can also select the active KVM port directly from the keyboard.

I have a cheap KVM from another site, so I suspect this will work with any standard KVM switch as long as it switches USB (not PS/2).

4 out of 5 eggs Terralux Lightstar 220 is smaller 12/10/2010

This review is from: Icon Light RG204A Rogue 2 Green Alluminum Flashlight 100 Lumens

Pros: Nice and bright, but not the best for the buck (see below).

Cons: - Flashy (as in 24K rims) - if this bothers you get the gray version
- Larger/bulkier than the Terralux Lightstar 220 (Google it)

Other Thoughts: I am revising my previous review to 4 stars after finding my Terralux Lightstar 220 is about the same brightness for half the price, and much lighter and smaller to boot. I consider my Terralux to be a pocket light, this one definitely is not. On the other hand, the Terralux claims to be 220 lumens but is almost identical is brightness to this one.

Click on, off, on to get low light mode.
